Public Information (PI)
(See Service Manual S60 for more information and GSO Public Information Guidelines on aa.org)
Basic PI Committee Functions
The purpose of Public Information Committee is to assist districts, groups, and members to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to the alcoholic who still suffers in their communities. Working together, members of Public Information committees convey AA information to the general public, including the media in hopes that alcoholics are reached and directed towards the program of AA. It is important that members are familiar with the details in “Speaking at Non-AA Meetings” and “Understanding Anonymity” principles prior to visits with the public. Please read the following important Public Information resources under www.aa.org followed by choosing AA Literature.
- Understanding Anonymity P-47
- Speaking at Non-AA Meetings P-40
- Public Information Workbook M-271
